The AccuPrime™ Taq DNA Polymerase System provides reagents for amplification of nucleic acid templates with an antibody-mediated, hot-start protocol for improved PCR specificity over other hot-start DNA polymerases (see figure). Platinum® anti-Taq DNA polymerase antibodies inhibit polymerase activity, providing an automatic hot-start, while a thermostable accessory protein enhances specific primer-template hybridization during every cycle of PCR. This combination improves the fidelity of Taq DNA Polymerase by two-fold and is ideal for high-throughput screening and multiplex PCR. AccuPrime™ Taq DNA Polymerase broadens primer annealing temperatures, giving you optimal performance between 55°C and 65°C. Advantages of AccuPrime™ Taq DNA Polymerase:

Specificity—control mispriming at every cycle to get single-band PCR products
Ease of use—minimize reaction optimization and primer set redesign
Convenience—conveniently assemble reactions at room temperature

AccuPrime™ buffers
The 10X AccuPrime™ buffers contain thermostable AccuPrime™ protein, Mg++, and deoxyribonucleotide triphosphates at concentrations sufficient to allow amplification during PCR. Two individual buffer systems (10X AccuPrime™ PCR Buffer I and II) are provided for amplification of specific types of templates. 10X AccuPrime™ PCR Buffer I is designed for small genomic DNA amplicons (≤200bp), cDNA, or plasmids. 10X AccuPrime™ PCR Buffer II is designed for genomic DNA (200 bp–4 kb).

AccuPrime™ Taq DNA Polymerase can be used for a wide variety of applications, including multiplex PCR, TOPO TA Cloning®, and allele-specific amplifications.
